#MakerCrushMonday: Christina Stembel, Founder of Farmgirl Flowers
Christina Stembel at Farmgirl Flowers has been part of the Brit + Co family for a while now :) For Christina, the creative process is one that is always changing, evolving and growing. Read on to see why she inspires us. And be sure to check her out in action by taking our Flower Arranging E-Class — spring is just around the corner!
What inspires you? Why do you love to design, create and make?
So many things inspire us! Great design in any area (fashion, culinary, architecture, interior, etc) inspires our color palettes, variety selections, and design aesthetics. I love getting inspiration from others we admire across the creative realm and follow fashion trends to determine what colors will be relevant at that moment.
Tell us how technology has changed and supported what you do.
Almost all of our orders come through our website, so that speaks for itself. Brick and mortar flower shops are dying, as the model doesn’t work given the perishable nature of the product and high overhead, so our online model fixes that problem.
What’s on your studio playlist?
It changes a lot, but right now we’re on a ’90s R&B kick in the studio.
How do you get into the creative flow? How does it feel?
